HEWITSON "Old Garden" Mourvedre 2010$0.00
This ancient vineyard (planted in 1853) is a source of profound and distinctive wine that delivered handsomely in 2010.
Made with grapes dry-grown in the oldest Mourvedre vineyard in the world - touting vines planted in 1853 - the 2010 Old Garden Mourvedre is medium deep garnet-purple in Colour. This wine is intensely scented of warm mulberries and black cherries with underlying cigar box, allspice, vanilla and potpourri suggestions. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it explodes with blackberry, baking spice and earth flavours, has medium levels of grainy tannins and bright acid freshness. It finishes long with some cedar notes coming through. Drink it now to 2022+ - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (93pts)
